Weber Summit S-620 frontA few of the many features of the Summit S-620 stainless steel gas grill include:

  • Fully enclosed stainless steel cart
  • Porcelain enameled cooking grates
  • Stainless steel covering with polished handles and trim
  • Accent painted cast aluminum end caps
Summit S620 handle lights

Summit S620 handle lights help you see during nighttime cooking sessions.

The stainless steel enclosed cart on the S-620 comes with chrome plated cast aluminum handles. This grill uses the same cooking system as the E-620, rated at 60,000 BTUs and six stainless steel burners that use the familiar Snap-Jet individual burner ignition system. The stainless steel Flavorizer bars and 3/8 inch diameter stainless steel cooking rods give any outdoor grilling party a professional flair.

With a substantial cooking surface of 838 square inches, including a good-sized warming area, the S-620 offers beauty and style to your outdoor barbeque while providing capacity to grill for the neighborhood. Swivel casters on the backside allow for easy movement of the grill, while front locking casters provide stability during cooking. Whether you prefer liquid propane grilling or natural gas, the stainless-steel version of the Summit S-620 will not disappoint you in your grilling efforts. As in the case of the Summit E-620, this Weber product is fairly new on the market and has not collected many customer reviews.

However, 24 reviews for the Summit S-620 outdoor grill indicate that 23 consumers had little to complain about, and only one user gave the grill a one-star review. According to this negative review, the S-620 Weber Summit model did not hold up in beach-weather, salty air climates. The limited warranty covers only Weber’s defects, but not rust or typical wear and tear for certain locations.

On the other hand, most users enjoyed the easy assembly, even heat throughout the cooking process, high quality of the grill, and flavor of the food. Typical pros and cons of the S-620 include:
